Situation

When a child has a life-threatening condition it has a huge impact, both on the child and their family. Treatment may take place at specialist centres far away from home. The child may have to endure painful treatment - that can sometimes make them feel as ill as the condition they are fighting. It can be a very traumatic time for siblings too - with mum or dad often having to spend time in hospital. And all the while, an uncertain future hangs over the whole family.

Solution

While medical professionals will be doing everything they can for the child, together there is something we can do to make a difference. Make-A-Wish Foundation UK grants magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. A wish allows a family to spend precious time together, creating happy memories to treasure forever - whatever the future may hold.
